Eggman Cometh by Ninja-Turtles Eggman Cometh by Ninja-Turtles
Just a bit of random art. After all, as much as I love TMNT I do have other interests. So, as I was working on this I thought I'd take Eggman to the extreme a bit. I withered his face to give him a more creepy look. I picture him as being a little more psychotic than the games, comics and cartoons depict. If I had my way, Eggman would be a force to reckoned with and not some pushover.

I would hardly call Eggman a pushover, ESPECIALLY in the game universe. He can be funny when he's failing, but when he's serious he gets pretty damn dangerous usually.

in archie, eggman isn't creepy, he looks cute and is charming and affable, or seems to be. but is two-faced and psychotic.

lol nice, ive only read a synopsis of them, apparently he friggen NUKED the sonic and freedom fighters of his reality, and when the original robotnik[like from the show] came to his world and died, he decided to replace the robotnik of that world. From what ive gathered, he manages to robotocize sally, and sonic's parents, and nearly murders a few others, as well as almost let all of humanity die from radiation poisoning!

Yeah, I'd say that counts as being a lunatic bad ass. Makes me wish they'd do a new Sonic 3D animated feature film. It also makes me wonder why they haven't even made one yet. It's a no brainer really.

yeah im honestly surprised as well, maybe its because none of the sonic shows since the one with the freedom fighters have been very successful. That, combined with the fact that video game movies arn't faring too well currently, makes it look like a bad investment

Well, the Ratchet and Clank movie to come out in 2015 might do well since the same team that made the games are involved. I guess it all depends who's attached to the project. Why can't Sega just make it? they don't seem to have a problem doing cinematics for their games. Just like with Blizzard Entertainment and Warcraft. Why do a live action movie when they could just do a 3D animated movie in house. I don't know if you've seen their cinematics but they're gorgeous.

Isn't it true the Eggman isn't actually the original Robotnik at all, but Metal Robotnik from the old comics?

....who was in fact (RETCON) an Ivo Kintobar from another timeline who lost to Sonic, downloaded his consciousness onto a satellite that fell through space, into the original dimension where he assembled the Dark Swat-Bots and other such machinery until the TRUE Ivo Robotnik died more then a decade ago and he managed to download his consciousness into a new cloned body and became the legendarily badly named....Eggman.

....Retcons are weird. Interesting, but weird

Well, continuity was screwed up the butt once the guys that currently owned the rights to Robotnik's name switched it for Eggman, and made Sonic X to switch his name. Copyright laws forced them to bring back Robotnik as Eggman in the Alpha Sonic Timeline, the Archie Comics.

Mecha Robotnik was a long time villain, but they never really explained him. The TRUE Ivo Robotnik dying was thematic and showed the comic could evolve, but many wanted him back. Mecha Robotnik I think was kept around as a backup Robotnik, one that was slightly less evil then the original and the Freedom Fighters didn't have CONSTANT traumatic issues with.

And if want insane continuity, here's another one. Did you know Shadow is actually in the original Sonic timeline comics now? And I don't just mean figuratively, I mean literally! Remember how, in the alternate universe timeline of Sonic X, Shadow died protecting the earth and the only thing left was his bracelet....well apparently he DIDN'T die, but was blasted ALL THE WAY into the main timeline. This version of Sonic has no memory of Shadow cause the original Sonic never stayed on Earth for any lengthy period of time.

That's messed up. Seems to me they should have kept everything the way it was. If Eggman is what Sega started with then that's the way it should have been. Wasn't Robotnik created because of the animated series? They thought Eggman wouldn't translate well in the States so they changed it to that? I guess that's another case of the source material getting butchered or improved depending how you look at it.

Sonic X was strange all the way around. I hated Chris Thorndyke like most and this is just my opinion but Sonic has no place taking place on earth. Keep it on mobius where you have one human type character(Eggman) doing battle with the Anthros.
I do remember Shadow's death from Sonic X but thinking of it any other way makes my brain hurt. LOL! Or, what you could do is just pretend that series never happened. LOL!

Here's what I would have done as far as Eggman/ Robotnik is concerned. I would have made him the last of his kind an anomaly that views himself as some kind of God. He goes around from planet to planet defeating them with his technology, sucking up their resources. He views it as a game but when he gets to Mobius He has a hard time defeating it because for the first time, the inhabitants of this planet put up a real fight. For once It's a challenge for him. He enjoys it and hates it all at the same time. He is able to use his full genius trying to find ways to conquer Mobius but he is always defeated.

No, Eggman I believe was completely created by the Sonic X team leader, who admitted he barely knew much about Sonic the Hedgehog when he got the rights. Since Sonic 1, the main villains name was Dr. Ivo Robotnik, which is a thousand times more intimidating then Eggman, nomatter how badass you phrase it in your picture.

That's what it was in the Sonic the Hedgehog, that's what it was in Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM, the original comics, and so forth until Sonic X created a bastardization timeline of a series.

Welcome to Sonic X, where everyone important dies pointlessly, and everyone pointless lives forever it seems. God, Croc's gang was SO useless!

Well, the problem with Robotnik is long-standing continuity. He's an Overlander, and so is Snivley, the Mobius term for a human. Making Robotnik less then human and more like Sauron would not allow us to enjoy his sadistic, personal nature. If you look up Robotnik's family tree, its very complicated. One of the weirdest discrepancies is that Ivo knew his name was Ivo Kintobar, but he changed it to Robotnik as an obvious villain name....but, by a big screw up by the Sonic X team, the legendary scientist Gerald, Ivo's grandfather, referred to himself as Gerald Robotnik!

You see, the reason why Robotnik calls Snivley 'nephew' is because Robotnik had a brother named Colin who had an ingenious son that Ivo took under his wing...Colin was openly racist against mobians, but never to the point where he thought everything should be roboticized. He tried to defeat his brother, but was turned into a metal statue.

Colin had a second child who was put in deep sleep, and like most Kintobar's, was a technological genius. When she woke up, however, she was revealed to be uncommenly pure of heart. The main reasons Shadow stays in this universe is because he's found happiness protecting Hope and has made friends in several of the female cast.

I did some quick research and this is what I found. When the 1st Sonic game was released in 1991, in the instruction manual he was called Dr. Ivo Robotnik for the US release. The instruction manual for the Japanese version called him Dr. Eggman.

I wish I was a little more in tune with the Sonic universe but sadly, most of what you're talking about goes over my head. I am familiar with a few things here and there but I suppose not enough to have an in depth conversation with.

All in all, I set out to create a sinister piece regardless of whether or not my interpretation of the character is 100% accurate both in appearance and background information. I think I accomplished that. It is nice to know a bit of the history though and I appreciate you filling me in.

I gotta say. I wasn't too fond of Sonic X. I wish they'd do another animated series that gets back to it's roots.

I agree with the way Robotnik/Eggman should be depicted, but he really is evil in the games' stories, just his comedic side is shown too much.

What I wouldn't give for Sega to actually make a feature length 3D animated film. Something to rival Dreamworks and Disney/Pixar.
I doubt Eggman would be depicted as being truly evil in such a film but one can dream.

Yes I did. I hate to be one of those people but it was cringe worthy. I do give Eddie credit for trying though. CGI and live action just don't work on a small budget. I'd rather the entire film be breathtaking 3D animation. That way nothing is out of place. Come on Sega! Get your ass in gear! LOL!

Actually, I had a much more creepy interpretation of Eggman quite a few years ago. The flesh of his face was stretched over a robotic frame but would've looked like something from the "Hellraiser" movies. Not appropriate for Sonic unless it was maybe for something ultra realistic.

Eggman was a force to be reckoned with in Sonic Sat Am. But here' he's psychotic but also unique. I like what you've done. Little things like the chip on his teeth really get the point across.

Robotnik is badass, even the light and comical version from the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog was a complete douche

Yeah, he's a pretty nasty guy that's for sure. Maybe in some incarnations he's not as nasty as he could be but maybe they don't want to scare some of the younger fans. Sadly, nowadays you have to watch what you say or do or you'll get sued.

Glad you like it though. Thanks.

Well even on a kid's show you can still show pure evil if you're smart. Like Joker on Batman: the Animated series. He never directly killed anyone on screen but he was an evil bastard.

As for people being sued, having crappy writers is a thing that trancends all ages.

We all know the real eggman, even if the comics forget it. And I really love this

If they ever portray Eggman in a creepy/twisted way, they'd pretty much have to make everyone else somewhat darker to fit in, as well as the story.
While he is a versatile character, I guess the drawback to such a character like him is that to maintain a cutesy, kiddie show, you have to keep the pretty much primary villain an all rounder type guy.
Lets face it, as much as I love Sonic, tails, and the rest of the crew, if they ever made Eggman super evil/twisted, having the rest of the cast as they are right now would feel out of place.

I agree. The other Sonic characters would need more of an edge to fit with this Eggman. Something that's a little more realistic could work although that might compromise the familiar look of the characters. It would surely be interesting to see a more mature take on it.

Thanks for the fave and the comment.

This is EXACTLY what Eggman should look like...

I never thought Eggman was particularly intimidating, but the character is extremely versatile. He can be comic relief, a minor annoyance, an antihero, and an all-out bone-deep force of evil that darn near conquers the world - all in one game.

Wonderful texturing job on his face!
